[SOLVED] Re: Samba won't update dns (still)
« Reply #45 on: May 04, 2013, 01:00:58 am »
The problem was the time sync between the server and the windows client machine.

The solution to this was as follows

Log on to the windows client as a domain administrator.
Execute the following command to sync time with the server (Kerberos authentication is time dependant)

net time /domain /set /y

Then re-register dns

ipconfig /registerdns

You may find it helpful to tail the syslog to ensure successful registraton

sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog | grep <client machine name>
